SU-7 BMK - Indian Airforce - 1:72 scale

Hi
Can someone please tell me if Kopro kits which are ex KP of SU-7 BMK
( export version) for the Indian Airforce accurate.
I am planning to buy one from Hannants and its going to cost me 5
pounds so just wanted to be sure.
Please help out, where else can I get the kit, if possible in Asia.
Warm regards
Paresh

have one of the KP version, and I am quite happy with it. Detail is raised from the surface, but it looks very good even when painted in shiny metal finish.

Wait till you see how many access panels that model has on it. KP prided themselves on doing really fine surface detail, and some of their models have nearly microscopic detail on the surface. On the MiG-19 kit you glued on around thirty tiny separate air scoops. There are fewer of those on the Su-7, and about the only tricky part of building it are the main landing gear doors, which separate into several parts on opening that fit together in a complex way. It would be best to look at some photos of the landing gear doors on a real aircraft before assembling them on the kit:

kit's landing gear includes the skids outside of the wheels for landing on mud. The ejection seat is mediocre on the kit. About the only thing that would have been nice to have in the kit that wasn't included were the RATO (Rocket Assisted Take Off) engines that were used on a lot of Su-7 missions to decrease takeoff roll when heavily loaded.

Hi Pat Is it possible to see some pictures of kits you made.
I am having difficulty in procuring the kit, as Hannants is not ready to ship orders less than 30$ and I get most of my stuff from luckymodel.com.
Any other place where I can look for it.
Warm Regards Paresh
